Any CFAs here? I am planning to start CFA prep in a couple of months. I have a B.Tech in Electrical and currently working as ERP Consultant (2+ yoe). I just want to get into Finance - is it worth investing time and money in CFA? Or are there any alternatives?

I have cleared L1 of CFA after which I discontinued CFA and cleared FRM L1 and planning to do L2. CFA certainly helps in the long run but requires tremendous dedication which unfortunately I didn't have.

Need some advice on FRM prep..pls can you help if possible

Not sure on CFA. But yes Economics, white collar jobs will take you places. Good luck and go for it.

I cleared L1 and then registered for L2 in 2020 than the exam got postponed thrice due to covid and so I basically gave up and canceled it. Go for it if you get are interested in learning finance and have the dedication. It will definitely give ROI if you are able to pass all 3 levels in your first attempt

Got promoted to senior but did not get a raise to go with it. Firm keeping salaries flat this year due to COVID-19, but I was shocked when I found out promoted staff wouldn’t be getting a raise either. To me, this whole thing rings hollow because the firm has told us multiple times that they were projecting flat growth for the year when compared to last year (which was one of the best in firm history). So it pisses me off that they shot their mouth off about how great year last year was...cont

Deloitte got pulled into a project with a manager I’ve gotten to know recently but I really am not interested in the project and it’s very different from my past project experiences. I think they picked me because they know me and the timing works out well. I don’t want to burn bridges by saying no to the project esp when they really need someone right now but I also have no desire to work on this for the next couple of weeks. Should I just suck it up or how do I go about this?
